Dave,

Unless I am mistaken there is java bridge support in zend "platform" which
is not the same as zend "core". I believe you have to purchase "platform".
I just wanted to say "core" goes a long way and unless you need to blend
java and php. Also because zend uses the pace environment you can also use
MySql and download and install open source content management system like
joomla and have it running in minutes. The trick to zend install is to use
qsecofr profile or a profile with equivalent *allobj authority.

Michael et al,

It appears that PHP or at least the Zend version, only accesses DB2/400
via ODBC? I was hoping it would use one of the better access methods
like OLE DB or Net.Data or the like. Is my information incorrect? Is there
a way to use Java to access DB2/400 and PHP for the presentation layer?

If only ODBC access, this is a severe drawback to me.

Thanks,

Dave

Has anyone considered PHP with the i5 toolkit. It is a very powerful when
used with style sheets. The toolkit allows you to use RPG (program calls),
native database and MySql, data queues, data areas. The learning curve is
MUCH smaller for a RPG programmer than java. Also, the resources used by it
i5 is much less than WAS. The internet is plastered with coding examples
too.

I think recommendations have to be made based on the needs and existing
infrastructure of a company. With that said and being this is a list where
I am guessing everyone has an System i5 in house, Brad's recommendation for
RPG CGI is quite valid. Going the RPG CGI route (for an RPG shop)
allows
them to cash in on existing knowledge and hardware investments (talking many
hundreds of thousands of dollars even for a shop with only 5 developers).

What advantages does ASP.NET 2.0 have over RPG CGI for a shop with a wealth
of RPG knowledge? I think when people make recommendations of ASP.NET they
don't realize how much change needs to take place to facilitate enterprise
level computing (read solid business apps).

Brad

Glad to know you are still alive, enjoyed your first book!

Don't necessarily agree with the RPG bit though? Would recommend ASP.NET 2.0
